One of my trainers at the Center for the Blind is allergic to CA so I bought her a bottle of odorless CA. Worked great! No allergic reaction to it at all.

Have no idea what you mean by gluing blanks together. Are you trying to make one huge blank

Switch to epoxy to glue your tubes in or glue them in outside.

CA is bad news for my sinus and head.
Do not use the stuff any more.
There are a lot more products that are more friendly.
In my opinion CA sucks.
Cheers

A NOTE - PLEASE READ:

I once bought a very nice pair of shoes. They looked great but I got a blister wearing them. I tried cushions for the spots that rubbed. Still blisters formed.

THOUGHT: I guess I should give up shoes forever!

That is the logic that happens too often with a failure or sign of a problem!

1.Ed Street has said, along with many others, that some ODERLESS CA provides a better finish and all have said so far that ODERLESS CA does not have the allergy problems. Give it a try!

2. Before Oderless, and after my severe reactions 10 years ago, I went though the stages of trying different finishes; Urethane took too long, 12 - 24 hours for cure; lacquer took too long, 12 to 24 hours for cure; Acrylic and acetone - another learning curve and other problems. I went back to CA, but with face mask, fan, and Dust Collector.

Because you get a blister, don't "give up," maybe there is another way in some cases. I will be trying lacquer again in the near future along with a couple of other finishes (such as UV glues). Each finish has its own unique characteristics, and showcases a pen in different ways. CA "IS" quick, highly protective and lasts reasonably long if done right. I still use a CA finished pen that is 9 years old and it is in very good shape. Yes, try other finishes, but if CA fumes cause allergies, TRY ODERLESS.

Also I will take what Lee said and go one step further. EACH CA BRAND IS DIFFERENT.

Woodchipper try classic nib. They stock BSI supergold. Also there is mercury which has odorless. UFO is another brand.

Depends on additives used. If it's methox or some other ingredients then it's stronger. If it's plain then no its the same as ECA. Also keep in mind that the accelerator is a key part of the process and there is Crap accelerator, mediocre accelerator and great accelerator
